Buster Davis can play all 3 LB positions in the Bucs defense.
dalbuc, there are a few folks that seem to believe we don't need a top tier QB, and I'd agree that is "mind-blowing," but I think the majority of the opposition to a QB on these boards is because a) Russell is likely a Raider and therefore not an option; b) people have huge questions about Quinn.
FRG is the most logical poster on this board. You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.
I think if Russell fell to the Bucs a lot of people here might have fewer problems with taking a QB first round. But when it's more likely a choice of Quinn v. Joe Thomas (who plays maybe the second most important position on the field) or Calvin Johnson, who might be the best pure football player in the draft and certaintly the best WR prospect since Moss, then I think it's more complicated than "don't pass on a franchise QB."
Buster's coverage abilities are being blown out of proportion. People do realize he played for FSU right? The guy can hold his own in coverage, just dont expect him to make an acrobatic INT and return it for a TD. That's ok though, ask any coach at any level in any system and they will tell you they want their LBs to excell in the running game moreso than the pass. YOu will be surprised when you see just how fast Buster Davis is coming downhill and running sideline to sideline. He is very explosive, with speed and agility that FSU LBs all have.
Calvin, Thomas and Russell were gone in this mock. I certainly like Thomas over Quinn but in this scenario while I think I might go Adams, Quinn is a very good selection given our issues.
The thing about picking a QB in R1 depends of what you want: win now or win later?If you want to go back to the playoffs next year, picking a R1 QB might not be the best option. If you're building for the future (and who isn't) then a franchise type QB should be the pick.
